2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 16

Whole30 2014For the next 30+ days, I will be eating meat, vegetables, healthy fats, fruits and nuts. I will not be eating processed food, sugar, dairy, grains or legumes, and I won’t be consuming any alcohol.

This is not my first Whole30, but this time I want to focus on a couple of specific elements: 1) fewer nuts as snacks and 2) fewer snacks in general. I would like to find the right mix of meals and pre-/post-workout fuel to keep me steady throughout the day.

If you’re doing a Whole30 or other challenge, if you are living/exploring the Paleo lifestyle, or if you are simply looking for some tasty recipes to add to your repertoire, be sure to leave a comment to let me know you’re out there! I am so glad you stopped by!


This week’s focus: Post-workout nutrition.

5:00 Black coffee

6:30 Roasted eggplant, 2 Lebanese spiced eggs, kale

9:00 Post-workout Beef wraps

12:30 Cucumber, olive, tomato salad with steak, 1/3 of a purple sweet potato with ghee

4:00 A few bites while preparing dinner

8:00 Spicy Chicken and Butternut Squash on Turnip Mash

Food I felt really satisfied all day long. I had some long stretches – the 4pm bites were really just tasting things as I cooked – and almost considered skipping dinner when I got home because I wasn’t particularly hungry. Instead, I put away half of what I’d originally served myself, ate some healthy food, and felt good.

Mood Good mood today – not super light and cheery yet, it’s been a rough few weeks – but feeling pretty good.

Sleep Nearly 8 hours! I went to bed at a reasonable time and slept soundly. I hit snooze a couple times, which I don’t always do, but it just felt great and I didn’t have to get up urgently. I feel like I am finally recovering from a rough week.

Activity CrossFit workout + a few other things just for fun.

Focus Beef roll-ups worked great afterwards again. They are quick and easy.
